Take a look at the friendship between Viking teenager Hiccup and an injured dragon that will change two worlds through the U.S. and international teasers of DreamWorks' animation.
Two sneak peeks into the forthcoming animation "How to Train Your Dragon" have come out in the form of a domestic and an international teaser trailer. The domestic version is debuted via Yahoo! Movies, while the international one comes out courtesy of Sky Movies. The two promo videos mostly offer similar footage but halfway through, different footage are disclosed.
In a mythical world of vikings and dragons lives a Viking teenager named Hiccup. Inhabiting the island of Berk where fighting dragons is a way of life, Hiccup finds that his offbeat sense of humor doesn't satisfy his tribe chief father. When he is included in Dragon Training, he seizes the chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter.
But then he encounters an injured dragon and his world is flipped upside down when he befriends the dragon. What started out as his one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.
Based on Cressida Cowell's first novel, "How to Train Your Dragon" is co-directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders. The movie will be DreamWorks' second movie to be made in 3-D following "Shrek Forever After". Jay Baruchel voices Hiccup with Gerard Butler and America Ferrera among the voice cast ensemble. It opens wide in conventional and 3-D theaters across the U.S. on March 26, 2010.
